SEASON 2018 promises to be a big one for the Armadale Christian Football Club.

There was success all around last year with the majority of the club’s seven teams making it into the finals, and there is a strong urge among players and coaching staff to continue that form into the upcoming season.

Helping them in their quest for success are two brand new sets of goals, which were purchased with the help of the Burt Stronger Communities Program and a Stockland community grant, as well as a new home training ground at Rushton Park.

President Chris Dawson said the club was looking forward to a great season.

“I believe that having our own grounds has given the club added credibility and stability, and this will continue to reflect in growth in numbers,” he said.

“Purchasing the two sets of goals is also an amazing accomplishment for the club.

“Ultimately, we are hoping to have a ‘southern hub’ competition based in our area with our club being the cornerstone of that arrangement and the goals are vital to make that possible and workable.

“This development will definitely increase membership as people prefer to not have to travel long distances to play a sport or watch their children.”

Dawson added there was plenty to love about both the sport and their club.

“Soccer is the fourth most played outdoor sport in Australia, ranks in the top ten for television audience viewing and is considered to be the most popular sport of all,” he said.

“We offer the chance to improve fitness, learn a team sport and how to work with other skill levels.

“Our games are played on Saturdays to provide an alternative for people who have commitments on Sundays and our club is inclusive, very welcoming and family friendly.”

Armadale Christian Football Club is looking for more players for their under-8, 14, 16 and women’s teams.
